Great being in Chiang Mai

  11 votes
I stayed in Chiang more for arround 3 months, and I had I great time. Chiang Mai is just a great city to be in with a lot of things going on. You can study Thai Massage, Yoga, great night life, close to nature

My main objective was to study Thai Massage, I booked a course online with one of the big schools, but I was really dissapointed while doing the course, it felt very unpersonal and orientated at money. After the course I decided to shop around a bit and I came across a school called NAMO Chiang Mai. I did a two week course there, the teaching was great, the teacher, a foreigner, very skilled and I received a lot of personal attention. And he gave a lot of attention to how I could use my body in the best way.

After the course was finished I did a yoga introduction course also at NAMO Chiang Mai, with a really intresting Russian guy, who lived as a monk the greater part of his life

After all these teaching I decided to go to Pai for a wek a really great and chilled place. Nothening really happening bet just a very chilled place to be, with alot of interesting travellers. After this week I spend 6 more weeks in Chinag Mai, basicly just hanging out, enjoying life, exploring the night life, Warm Up club is a greast place to go out. In Chiang Mai I stayed at Grace Questhouse, very affordableand a great restaraunt. If you stay in Chiang Mai make sure you rent a bike, makes life so uch easier

Favourite spots:
NAMO Chiang MAI, massage plus Yoga
Charcoal, great Cakes and great Coffee
Tsunami, best Sushi
Grace House, affordable rooms
Sunday Market

What's really great:
I had the best experience with the water festival, a great festival. And i enjoyed studying at NAMO Chiang Mai very much

Mai Sae Elephant Camp

Grace House
Charcoal Questhouse

Warm Up Club, great place to meet to Thai people


Hot Shot, interesting entertainment


Other recommendations:

Your introduction is interesting but you need to tell us more about the places you mention in other sections.
I know photos are not always possible but a report without them is unlikely to gt more than 4* at best.
